Friday Night Fights: Gene - Round 10: Good Vibrations!

You may have noticed how it's been a while since I've posted a round of Friday Night Fights: Gene. That's essentially because the demands of work and family have been kind of kicking my butt recently, leaving me with less time and energy to post these weekly walings. Meaning: I'm going to settle for being an irregular contributor here for the time being. But I'm back for this week's round with a fight guaranteed to shake you up, courtesy of Justice League Of America#140 by Steve Englehart, Dick Dillin, and Frank McLaughlin.

Synopsis: After the Manhunters capture Green Lantern, Green Arrow, and Black Canary, the other members of the Justice League manage to track them to the Arctic, where they fall into a trap courtesy of the Manhunters' leader, the Grandmaster.

To be fair to Superman, 99.999% of the time he tries this, he succeeds. Unfortunately for our Man Of Steel.....

.....this isn't one of those times.

Yep, the old "shrinking energy cube" trick.

Here's where Batman shows why he's in the group.

Actually, Flash, Supes only tried to punch through the cube, not vibrate through it, but....ohh, you be you, Steve Englehart.


You'd think Grandmaster could've gotten away by more than just a few yards away by now, but....let's just roll with it.

Luckily, Flash gets up right away rather than catch 8 hours of "z's" while his friends are being sliced into Kibbles & Bits.

Tonight's fight music is this take on an old Beach Boys song by Todd Rundgren.
